Calgary police chief settles with couple out of court over critical website

Now, prior to this, I didn't know anything about Calgary's police chief, but judging from the reaction to the site, and the methods that he employed, I tend to believe that the site had a point. So they criticized you? You don't go slap a gag order on them, that is an abuse of power and by abusing your power you simply build the case against you. When one is in a position such as Police Chief you will find that not everyone appreciates how you conduct your affairs, shutting up those who disagree however sounds a frightening lot like China or Soviet Russia and not our free and democratic country that we are all so proud to live in.
